, welcome to skwau"squawk on the street." i'm melissa lee live from the new york stock exchange. u.s. futures coming off a week that saw the s&p 500 down by more than 2%. green arrows looking to add some gains. mixed bag of data, retail seas up 1.1% for september. better than expected but new york manufacturing disappoi disappointing. the picture in europe, digesting a reuters report that says quit asking for a bailout in september. the biggest ones in france, up 1.1%. a road map this morning starts with a massive telecom deal. david brought you the deal and this morning, official, softbank to acquire a 70% stake in sprint. what happens with clear wire surging? does it mean a deal with pck is off the table. >> on earnings and revenues sending citi shares higher. u.s. mortgage business and lending mexico helped boost results. >> microsoft's back in the music business unveiling a service that could compete with the likes of pandora and itunes. we have an exclusive with the head of their interactive entertainment straight ahead. softbank to buy 70% of sprint for $20 billion marking the
demand due to the european crisis and a slow u.s. recovery. data from europe showing industrial output in germany fell .5% in august. lots to digest. the world bank note was interesting. what they pointed out was a lot of chinese cities that had these aggressive and ambitious spending, stimulus plans to rebuild the cities might have trouble running into funding for these projects. >> i think a lot of the data that we see today is catch-up. there's just not a lot of good news out there. the brightest spot in the economy is the united states. i think it was controversial last week. we got an unemployment number suddenly that was a grand conspiracy. i didn't see it that way because perhaps i'm not a black helicopter guy. but i do think that other than the united states, there's not a lot of momentum. and china and europe can pull the world down. you see today the world being pulled down. china is not doing much to help its situation. i think the estimates for china at 7 are wrong. it should be 5.6. >> change in power coming up in china. typically there is inaction on the part of the gover
here. 51.3. this is a new series. it does a good job tracking u.s. pmi figures because they dictate everything from the industrial cycle frankly to earnings estimate. if there's some strength and stability there, that will quell concerns coming into the session this morning. >> let's zero in on facebook for just a moment this morning. a year ago mobile has a percentage of overall ad revenue was 0. it is now 14. citi calls it a nice beat. says they can probably effectively grow revenues during this transition without the key is whether or not they grew on the user experience in the meantime. >> i think that one of -- this call unlike the last one was full of facts. data which indicates advertisers like it. a bold claim. 40% of users are likely to use facebook with desk top but 70% use it on mobile which is why proctor & gamble reports tomorrow. walmart. amazon. capital one with the best bank quarter all like facebook. i wouldn't be surprised if gm didn't want to come back on facebook and maybe they say, hey, nice to meet you. we're going with the other guys. >> there is a concern tho

. what is the objective for germans? is this a way of them exiting the u.s. market by basically floating the new business on the stock exchange through a reverse merger? are they going to pay that down? >> i don't cover t-mobile so it's hard for me to comment on them. they've recently completed a deal to sell their towers and they've got cash from the failed at&t deal. it looks like they are really trying to bolster their position from several quarters that they have been losing to subscribers. they are trying to shore up their position in the u.s. >> jim, do you think that the companies are being overly optimistic about their ability to merge the two different network technologies that they have? we saw the nextel merger which could be considered one of the worst, you know, mergers in the books. >> right. >> in this industry. >> it's a little bit of a different -- a little bit of a hard comparison because it was different and the one commonality that you do have is metropcs was one of the first mergers to launch lt. t-mobile is behind there in terms of rolling out lt. i think it will be
but others including china and europe. back to you. >> thanks. u.s. bond markets open for trading. hey, rick, good to see you. >> 49.9. there are several interesting aspects to that. we never talk about rumors. i was getting 49.9 number an hour ago before it was released. it proved to be correct. it is also the first time since august and september of '09 we had back-to-back readings on chicago under 50. our last month was 49.7. this read at 49.9. having said that, if i look at how all of the issues of the east coast have impacted trading, i guess the answer would be not very much. interest rates really haven't been volatile even in the absence of a cash market. futures traded yesterday and other parts of the globe. we're hovering just above 170 on a ten-year. no great shakes there. under 290 for a 30-year bond. many are paying attention to the bank of japan and quantitative easing plus especially some more buying in things like real estate and reits which our fed hasn't done. yet. back to you. >> thank you, rick santelli. much of lower manhattan is without power but the new york stock excha

. sprint of course is the way that a foreign overseas company can gain access to the u.s. >> softbank said they could do a deal as much as $20 billion. this would not be that much but it does beg the question as to why sprint, given how bullish it's been in its own prospects would be willing to cap those prospects. you would have a public equity. don't know how they do it but they do it through a tender offer. i'm trying to get more details on structure here and frankly on the specifics of price. >> sprint preferred's been trading up markedly in the last few days. someone knew about this deal. it is really extraordinary they're doing this. dan hessy, ceo, has said over and over again he doesn't need the money. but who's going to turn down free money? >> are they going to take out public shareholders completely? to get a 75% stake you have to buy out much of the shareholders but i don't know what comes in addition to that. in the japanese media there's ban $1 been a $12.8 billion number out there but i haven't been able to -- simply because people involved don't want to tell me. not sure wh

. the year 1888 was the last time the u.s. stock markets were shut for more than one day due to weather. the nyse and nasdaq are hoping to reopen tomorrow, wednesday. a key trading day because it's the last day of the month when traders prays their portfolios. meantime, new york city mayor is set to hold a news conference on sandy 45 minutes from now. we will go to that conference once the mayor begins his remarks. we'll hear from a number of ceos about how sandy has impacted their businesses. the heads of hartford financial and landry is among the top executives who will be joining us over the last few hours. how equity index futures are trading. will cease trading in 15 minutes time. the dow and nasdaq pointing d n down. as for europe, the action dominated by deutsche bank and bp. we do see green arrows across the board with a 1% gain in germany. >> at least 16 deaths blamed on sandy as the storm continues to wreak havoc on the northeast with new york and new jersey dechaired major disasters. overnight more than 200 patients have been evacuated from two nyu langone hospitals after ba
